On January 20, the Indian village of Thulasendrapuram will celebrate the inauguration of Kamala Harris, the first Black and South Asian woman elected as Vice President of the United States, with vegan treats. This week, every family in the villagethe birthplace of Harris grandfatherreceived a basket of vegan biryani, plant-based meat from Indian startup GoodDot, oat milk from Good Mylk, vegan sweets, and more courtesy of the animal-rights group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA).

PETA India is delighted to help Thulasendrapuram celebrate the milestone of Vice President-elect Harris inauguration with vegan goodies, especially since she has sponsored and supported so much legislation in the US against cruelty to animals, PETA India spokesperson Radhika Suryavanshi said. Vegan food saves animals lives, helps preserve the planet, and safeguards human health, so everyone wins.

Harris stance on meatDuring a CNN town hall in 2019 during Harris run for president, the now VP-elect responded to a question about whether she would support a change in the dietary guidelines to reduce the consumption of red meat. I love cheeseburgers from time to time, I just do. But [we must also consider] what we do in terms of creating incentives that we will eat in a healthy way, that we will encourage moderation, and that we will be educated about the effect of our eating habits on our environment, Harris said. We have to do a much better job with that and the government has to do a much better job with that.

In December 2020, Harris was also challenged to go vegan for the month of January by JIVINITI Womens Coalition, a diverse group of organizations composed mostly of women of color led by nonprofit The Virsa Foundation. The Vice President-elect has not publicly accepted the challenge.
